iphone email attachment

Level 2

Recently tried attaching a file to an email on an iphone 6 via the add attachmnet button. This takes you to locations>dropbox>then select the file. Once selecting the file, it spins saying waiting to download. Is anyone else having this same issue?

Hi guys,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this. Welcome to the community.

 

Can you please ensure you have the latest version of the Dropbox mobile app installed? Also, does this happen with all the files or specific ones?

 

Any detail would help!

Hi 

 

Have your tried  uninstalling your Dropbox app, reinstalling it and signing into Dropbox again.

 

The Dropbox engineers continually update the app so a fresh version or just reinstall might solve your problem.

 

Regards

I had tried to reinstall the app. I also tried on a different iPhone. Same results. 

 

It it looks like there was an update out out this morning that does solve the issue.
